Needed: Host families for German exchange students

Make a difference in someone’s life by sharing yours! The Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange (CBYX) for Young Professionals is looking for  families to host German exchange students. CBYX is a reciprocal fellowship that gives 75 German young professionals the opportunity to live with an American host, study at a local college, and complete a six-month paid internship in their career fields.

Participants are 18 to 24 years old and selected by a German member of Parliament to be a cultural ambassador to the United States. They arrive in August, study at a community college for one semester and work from January to June.

Host families are expected to provide food for two meals a day and a private bedroom for the participant, welcome them into their home and share their culture. Student participants pay for their own personal expenses and participate in family life and household chores.
